WHO WE ARE
Texas A&M Powerlifting is a student-run organization at Texas A&M University and a club sport in the Texas A&M Sport Club Association, a division of Texas A&M Rec Sports. Our team has the support of the Sport Club advisors, Jessica Konetski and Keith Joseph, Assistant Director Director of Sport Clubs, respectively. Texas A&M Powerlifting is also under the national governing body USA Powerlifting (USAPL), an International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) affiliate. USAPL and IPF are the premier associations for drug free powerlifting in the United States and in the world. Texas A&M Powerlifting competes at the USAPL Collegiate Nationals every year in the spring, arguably the most competitive powerlifting competition in the United States.
We are very proud to admit that we have the nicest powerlifting equipment on the Texas A&M campus and one of the nicest facilities of any collegiate team in the USAPL. Our facility is equipped with Eleiko bars and Ohio Power bars, Eleiko plates, custom maroon ER Racks, Elite FTS Safety Squat Bars, and Rogue Deadlift Jacks.
The members of our team come from all education classifications, all majors, and all levels of experience in the sport of powerlifting, but they are the same in that they are committed and dedicated to the success of the team and themselves as lifters. Our members are student athletes, training in the weight room 9-15 hours per week. Our athletes become skilled at time management from balancing hectic school, training, work, and social schedules.
Joining Texas A&M Powerlifting is a substantial time commitment, but as many former members can attest it is well worth it in the lifelong friendships, experiences, and accomplishments gained.
